Fashioned for Joy

As the hand is made for holding and the eye for seeing, you have fashioned me, O Lord, for joy.

Share with me the vision to find that joy everywhere:
in the wild violet's beauty,
in the lark's melody,
in the face of a steadfast man,
in a child's smile,
in a mother's love, in the purity of Jesus.


(a Scots Celtic prayer)
